Revised proposals for the redevelopment of Shoreham Airport in West Sussex are going on public display.

Erinaceous, the airport's new private owner, has spent the past four months discussing its plans with the Civil Aviation Authority and local councils.

It wants to restore the listed terminal building as well as creating a new Aviation Square and operations centre.

People can view the plans on 1 February at the airport or at Adur council offices between 5 and 9 February.

The airport said its proposals would "enhance the quality of passenger facilities".

The refurbished terminal building would have improved public access, function and conference facilities and a restaurant.

The Aviation Square development is for two three-storey buildings for mixed use, while there would also be a new aircraft hangar, fire station and air traffic control tower.

Public feedback will be used in the preparation of a formal planning application.

Plans to regenerate the airport began in 2003.
